Not quite done casting Magic Missile and attacking the darkness
of Neverwinter Nights
? Well, good. Atari has announced
an expansion pack for Neverwinter Nights 2
, ominously entitled Mask of the Betrayer
. Slated for release this Fall and developed by Obsidian Entertainment, the game promises more spells, more monsters, more weapons, more levels, more modding possibilities and presumably, more heartless backstabbing.
"Neverwinter Nights 2: Mask of the Betrayer
's engrossing campaign will conclude the storyline that began in the original Neverwinter Nights 2
and focus on combat, exploration and classic D&D dungeon-crawling," says Obsidian CEO and plausible fantasy character, Feargus Urquhart. He also notes that the expansion will see enhancements made to the companion Influence System, as used in the base title and Knights of the Old Republic 2: The Sith Lords
. Of course, it's probably best to just avoid adding any masked strangers to your party during this particular adventure.
